Abstract:     
Recent research by Elton et al (2001) argues that investment-quality defaultable debt spreads reflect three factors: expected losses, risk premiums and taxes. In this paper, we sort bond price data on liquidity proxies (quote frequency, bond age and issue size) and show that an important additional component of spreads is a liquidity premium.
